Actress and jewelry designer KC Concepcion took to social media to pay tribute to her mother, music icon Sharon Cuneta, in celebration of Mother's Day.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, KC shared the things she admired most about her mom.
"HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY. I spent all of my childhood fully immersed in her songs. Her voice when she sings is the most relaxing thing in the world. I am her biggest fan when I see her up on that stage, microphone in hand... I almost forget I’m her daughter while I watch in the audience. Ang galing lang talaga niya," she began.
"And backstage—if only you can all see what goes on behind the curtains. The show behind the scenes with mom is yet another thing to be amazed by and to admire," she continued. "I grew up in studios watching this firecracker of a woman study and record her songs, rehearse and tape her shows, transform from one character to another, day after day, night after night. We would have late nights, but my heart was full because it meant I was spending time with mom."
"I admire her laughter, her work ethic, excellence, passion and devotion to her craft (and fans!) more and more as time goes by," she added.
Addressing her mother, KC said: "Grateful to call you my mother, and for everything you have taught me, even unknowingly... Having a mom like you is rare and a privilege not given to just anybody. Happy Mother’s Day to la reina mi mama, I love you so much."
KC is the daughter of Sharon with her former husband, actor Gabby Concepcion.
The veteran actress-singer is now married to Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan, with whom she has three children—Frankie, Miel, and Miguel.
